This is a calendar frame based on the plans from Wood magazine. Materials are red oak, luan plywood, and a dry erase board. Dimensions are 18” x 25”. Since we use a considerably smaller calendar than the folks at Wood magazine I added the center rail and the white board in the lower section. Other changes from the plan include butt joints instead of half laps and hinges set into the top of the lid and support rail rather than in the edges. I didn’t really like the brass hook they used to hang the calendar so I used the router to cut a recess for the calendar’s hanger. Finish is a random stain I got from the company that built my kitchen cabinets and several coats of spray can poly.

What a great idea. Maybe something like this will free up my refrigerator door from post-its, reminders and erasable marker scribbles to be, wel, just a door again. Great execution.

This has been on my to do list for quite awhile. Our daughter gives us a new custom calendar each year and we’ve wanted something to hang them in. Unfortunately, she does a different size every year. So, I haven’t finalized on the final design of the frame… It will have that nice pencil holder that you have.

Anyway, nice job. Thanks for posting.
